    I decided over the weekend that the Ways to Make & Save Money series will no longer be weekly, because I’ve exhausted my queue of ideas for the moment. I know I have more, including a positive update on Instant Cash Sweepstakes, but it’ll be easier to just post the ideas as I’m able.

    There’s still time to enter to win a $5 Amazon gift card by giving me a tip on how to make attending a wedding with the boys easier. There are only 14 entries so far (thanks for the tips!), and since it’s a random drawing, the chance of winning is pretty high!

    RedplumRedPlum has some new coupons, including $1/2 Pop Tarts and 50 cents/1 C&H sugar. A 5 lb. bag of C&H sugar appears to be on sale at Vons/Pavilions (possible all Safeway stores) for $2.69, so it’ll be just $1.69 after double coupon. Links via Logical Media

    The Vons/Pavilions/Safeway deal of Buy 8, Get $4 off includes Ritz Munchables, so if you have the $1/1 printable that was available a few weeks ago, they will be just 99 cents per box.

    The Buy 8, Get $4 off deal also includes Fiber One bars, and I have to say, the 90-calorie bars aren’t bad. Plus, they’re only one Weight Watchers point. (Yes, I started up with WW again – more on that later.) Use the 40 cents/1 printable coupon for the best deal, although there was a 50 cents/2 coupon in the 5/30 GM.

    The boys didn’t like Hot Dog on a Stick very much, but they are giving away free hot dogs on a stick tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m. (Via My Good Cents.)
